youtube has become better over the years. I was there from DAY one and made an account soon after.

Theres tons of hidden pirated content you just gotta know how to find it

the people that make series are the money makers for youtube. so in a sense its their site since their content keeps the most interest. ex epic meal time..

it takes 10 hours on a good day to make 1 hour of content, from recording, editing, scripting, rendering etc. most people dont have time to do that.

naming is key.
ads come with the territory.
